Now known as NYX Professional Makeup its a brand that has impressed me from the very start. The products like the pro lip palettes definitely give the likes of Mac a run for their money because its good quality and good prices. For me walking into the drugstore makeup section NYX Professional Makeup has always stood out as that brand that makeup artists would go for. So when the new NYX Professional Makeup Ultimate Palettes landed on my desk I knew I was in for a treat. I already put the warm neutrals to the test on Saturday and definitely a hands up from me.

The palettes come in a selection of shades each retailing at R369.95 which is a bargain if you ask me. Perfect if you are wanting to build your makeup selection of shades to take your look from day to night. Or if you love to be bold the brights palette is amazing. There are 4 in the collection including the smokey which I have yet to get my hands on with 16 shades per palette.

The cool neutrals palette has got lots of the lighter shades with a mix of maroon, greys, chocolates and a purple. Great to create lots of bold eyes and definitely perfect for a night out on the town. Or even just perfect for a day time glowing makeup look that you can even work some of the shades as highlighters.

The warm neutrals palette is definitely your every day go to palette with so many amazing shades. I would have to say I actually prefer the selection of shades in this palette than my Mac warm neutrals palette that by the way costs R1200!!! Loads of wearable colours here amazing for most skin tones and a definite must if you are starting out as a makeup artist and need to build up your collection.


The Brights Palette is your summer bold palette that I think everyone should have in their stash. Totally in love with the reds and pink shades in the palette and perfect to play and create some amazing bold looks. This is definitely a goodie for me when it comes to photo shoots will definitely be going a bit nuts with this one.

If you haven’t checked them out yet they are available at selected clicks stores as well as Clicks online so you have no excuse to get yourself one of these bad boys.
